Two years ago I made a New Year’s resolution to Start Drinking. So many studies tell us that a glass of wine or a cocktail a day have huge benefits, and I have a tendency to believe that. Plus, anything that relieves stress and quiets the voices in my head – well you get the idea.
So for the past couple of years I’ve been attemtping to up my alcohol intake. But I don’t like really strong cocktails and the super-sugary ones just make me sleepy.
Here’s my new fave, introduced in Key West by my dear friend Paul Athanas but made with limes from my own tree!
I give you, The Chip-Chip:
1 shot Fonseca White Port (good luck finding a bottle – I had to special order mine from Silver Lake Wine)
1 squeeze of fresh lime juice
Serve in a highball glass with some ice.
First the ice, then the white port, then the lime squeeze, then the tonic.
Garnish with a slice of lime and give a little stir.
Easy, yet so delicious!
